Do I need a Colt 1911??

Now I need to get an '03A3 and a Springfield M1A to have replicas of the US main battle rifles from 1900 to present.

So in that light, I would need a GI 1911 be it Colt (first choice) or one of the other manufactures of WWI or WWII 1911's. Then that leads to even more military sidearms to get if I wanted to get battle rifles and handguns Rolleyes



Well then, I guess I can post this (SIG 1911 Scorpion):

Ugh that trigger looks so ugly. What's the squeeze force on it? Same as a PT / Kimber? I really like that ribbing on the bottom of the magwell even if there's no mag that will ever make that pretty and flush.

p.s. love the bottom rail.

I don't much like the trigger either so it will get changed out at some point in time for a curved trigger which, to me, feels better than a flat trigger.

Right now the trigger pull 4 1/2 lbs but when I change the trigger I'll probably change the sear spring also to get it to 2 1/2 to 3 lbs. I'm not shooting Bullseye so I don't need a real light trigger at this time. However, I can shoot it pretty good the way it is right now.
